I’ve got powerful enough characters to do the first battle for Luke’s hero’s journey event. I got through the whole fight except for the boss. The boss had 4 buffs going: speed, crit, something I can’t remember and a heal. The heal recovered all the damage I could do every round. I let it play out with auto and he never runs out of the heal effect or the other buffs. Must be an ability of the character.
The fight is broken. Just flat out broken. It’s frustrating. I’m mad. I just spent a bunch of money to improve my empire characters enough to get R2D2... and then to improve him. And then the first fight has an unbeatable boss. It’s unquestionably bad design. Makes me want to ditch the game. I’m exactly the kind of player they don’t want to lose. I spend money. Making the game crappy isn’t a way to keep me.
Fix the event.
